Montana’s Back Pages

MontanaBlackArt.Tumblr.com

Montana Black doesn’t really need a Tumblr account. The Boulder City-based artist has a website (ArtByMontana.com), an Etsy page (Etsy.com/shop/ArtWithIntention) and a number of paintings from her “Angels Unveiled” series on permanent display inside University Medical Center. While the extra exposure afforded by a Tumblr is nice, that doesn’t seem to be the reason Black is using the visually based blogging service. Rather, she uses it to credit and celebrate her influences. Every now and again she’ll post one of her own works, but she always does so in the context of the art that created that art, whether it’s a piece of music by Ennio Morricone or something Luna Lovegood said in one of the Harry Potter books. Black’s Tumblr is, in essence, her liner notes: She uses it to reveal the method of her invention, to reflect light back to every guiding star that illuminated her.

What Happens in the Suburbs

By Greg Blake Miller

I am pleased to announce that Tony Hsieh and the owners of downtown’s Golden Gate have joined forces to buy my home. The bottom floor will be transformed into a youth-oriented “block-party zone,” with a garage-style door (this is great, since I happen to have a garage door) that opens directly onto cocktail-and-concert seating on my suburban street, Luscious Creek Terrace. The Avett Brothers will perform a special midnight show this Saturday. I have informed the homeowners association about the show but have received no response. Tony says he’ll take care of it.
